The world of Iberian ham
Barcelona’s Jamón Experience is the largest space in the world dedicated to Iberian ham. A museum area over 3 floors offers an interactive and audiovisual introduction where you’ll discover its history and the secrets of its elaboration. The tour ends with a guided session of sampling different types of ham and identifying the processes which result in their distinctive characteristics.
A unique restaurant
The good news is that if you’d rather skip straight to the happy ending and focus your experience of Iberian ham on the flavours on your palate, the Jamón Experience also has an excellent restaurant which offers an unmissable gastronomic experience.
Its unbeatable location in front of the Boqueria market, on the Ramblas, provides delightful views over the city’s most famous street from the first-floor dining area.
As for the menu, it’s truly one of a kind. You’ll find specialties such as Joselito Iberian meats, seasonal dishes and the best selection of Iberian ham on the global market. Choose from a carefully selected variety of local wines and sparkling cava to accompany your meal. A lunchtime midday menu is available from Monday to Friday for 15€.
Gourmet treats to take home
The experience doesn’t need to end when you put down your napkin as many of the products are available to buy from their gourmet shop. You’ll also find plenty of original gift ideas for souvenirs that friends and family will probably appreciate more than a classic keyring. Whole legs of ham with full carving instructions and smaller packs of ready-sliced ham are available, as well as wines and other local produce.
